the pentagon. chris. >> reporter: yeah, joe. bradley manning just wrapped up his time on the stand. and he spent the entire day being cross examined by prosecutors who have been poking holes in the idea that his mistreatment was so bad that he contemplated suicide multiple times when locked up. they basically went back to a key incident in what happened to him while he was at quantico where he had to stand at parade rest naked. prosecutors went back and went back to this incident. and bradley manning had to admit that he had made a statement, something to the effect of, you know, hanging himself with his underwear. that was the reason they took off his clothes. but then further more he had a blanket over him and that he thought from what the guard said he had to drop that blanket and stand there naked. but he admitted that the guards never actually gave him an order to drop the blanket and that in subsequent days they brought his clothes with his meal tray and gave him adequate time to get dressed before standing before attention like he was called to do. so all of this, joe, is really pla

branches of the u.s. military. we're in constant contact with them. i've just now come from the pentagon as you are aware our minister of defense ehud barak received the highest civil honor given by the secretary of defense to any civilian, the distinguished civil service medal. and i think that stands as a symbol of the deep and multifaceted relations between our two militaries. >> we're out of time. you're a historian. he just said ehud barack, that u.s.-israeli military relations have never been better. you agree? >> i agree. >> thanks for coming in. >> thank you, wolf. >>> in the wake of the scandal surrounding general david petraeus's affair and the investigations into several other high profile generals, does the u.s. military need an ethics boot camp? and more than a decade after a deadly crash, a u.s. airline gets its day in court. many of my patients clean their dentures with toothpaste. i tell them dentures are very different to real teeth. they're about 10 times softer and may have surface pores where bacteria can grow and multiply. polident is specifically designed to clean d
'll look to the pentagon for what makes the most sense for the national security needs are the country. but what we proposed top of those $1 trillion savings of last year is $600 billion in detailed reforms to our health care programs and other government programs that over 10 years yield very substantial savings. again, david, republicans have said that they don't like those reforms. they'd like to do more. and if that's true, they should tell us what they'd like as an alternative or compliment to those. we can't react to anything 2348 until we see the details of the proposal. and we need it on the rates and revenues as well as the spending side. we have given them our view of what makes sense for the country. we think we'll have enormous support. >> is it fair to go to republicans, many of whom were re-elected just like the president was re-elected in their own districts and say, look, we're going to get specific when it comes to the tax increases we want, but we'll be vague when it comes to stuff that's hard for our side, which is medicare. >> that's a misperception. we propossessed
troops. backed by the aclu, four women service members are suing the pentagon for barring them from direct combat duty. zoey is a captain in the u.s. marine corps reserves and plaintiff in the lawsuit, air yell la is a senior staff attorney for the aclu women rights project. thanks so much. captain bodell, you deployed twice to afghanistan and basically left the active duty marines corps because you were blocked from the combat duty. what is the difference, the most important difference, between being able to be in combat and not? >> well, to be clear, women are serving in combat and i was in charge of a team called the female gaugement team -- engagement team and i had 47 marines and they were in combat if that unit was attacked, they were attacked with them. so i do want to make clear women are in combat and we're asking that the policy be changed to reflect the reality of what's happening on the ground. >> i mean -- >> exactly. the point you're making is that in these wars, there's to front line, there's no rear guard. once you've deployed you are in combat, you are subject to al

, a former pentagon official said among our guests. we begin tonight with that triple digit rally on wall street. the market interpreted positive statements on a potential deal on the fiscal cliff by house speaker and rebounded from what had been a 112-point slide after the morning's opening bell. the dow jones industrials reversed, as i said, on the speaker's positive remarks and finished the session up 107 points. s&p up 11, nasdaq gained 24. all ten s&p 500 sectors moved higher on the day. that is the first time it has happened since october 4th. retailers drove the consumer discretionary sector energy industrials lead in the wake, and the rally started just minutes before house speaker made it clear that republicans are willing to deal on revenue and ready to find a resolution now. >> we all know that we have had this spending crisis coming at us like a freight train. it must be dealt with. and in order to try to come to an agreement, republicans are willing to put revenue on the table, but it is time for the president and democrats to get serious about the spending problem that our c
in guantanamo bay. there are cases all across the u.s., the pentagon is now taking a position where it is saying arbitrarily that the act of receiving information by any journalist anywhere in the world, that the pentagon says is classified and publishing some portion of it, or quote from it is espionage. it applies to journalists and also applies to people within government. >> i understand your point. but the committee to protect journalists says about ecuador -- hold on. let me ask you the question. about ecuador, president correa has turned ecuador into one of the most restrictive nations for the press. i didn't agree to talk about the surveillance state. >> well, i'm sorry. look, do you want to bring my p.a.s on? please, please. so, look. let's be honest. we have a serious situation here. whatever little things that are occurring in small countries are not of concern. >> this country -- ecuador is the country that is preventing you from being arrested the minute you walk outside the door. >> including the united states, including western europe, including france, including what was happenin
or top pentagon official, ashton carter or michelle flouryon. the special envoy to afghanistan and pakistan, mark grossman, the man that took over after richard holbrooke died. he too is stepping down from that onvy to afghanistan and pakistan. hillary clinton may be replaced by susan rice or somebody else. hillary clinton says she, herself, will not be staying on for the second term. so if you just want to focus on the war for a second, it is all change in terms of the leadership for the top officials in year 12 of america's longest war. all change for everybody in top roles there except for the president and the vice president and the 66,000 americans who are still in afghanistan fighting that war. america's war in afghanistan is not due to end this year or next year. it is not due to end until the end of the year after that, at the end of 2014. that's the date by which president obama says the u.s. combat mission in afghanistan will end. it seems important to note that that is the latest possible date by which the president says the combat mission will end. it doesn't mean i
in the government, including in the pentagon. i'm a defense hawk, but the pentagon needs to do a better job when it comes to handling the people's money too. you can't close that gap between spending and the debt by just raising taxes on the two upper income tax breaking news, you havbrackets.you have to deal wig entitlements like medicare and social security. >> greta: what do you think is going to happen? will we go over the fiscal cliff, or a last-minute hustle and something will be packaged together, probably not very satisfactory to anyone, not likely to solve our nation's problems? >> well, i feel like it's more likely than not we will go off the cliff. i'm not convinced that's not the president's plan. patty murray, one of the leading democrats, gave a specie a few weeks ago at brookings ago, said cliff in order to generate the additional taxes they want they would be willing to do so. i think that's incredibly reckless, because a lot of americans will be put out of work, the economy will crater, we'll be in a recession again, and once you start down that road it hard to know where it sto
with the president of the united states and the pentagon and the afghans and all the nato allies sprinting for the exits there. that's what's on your plate. that's today. do you want this job of sorting this all out? again, that's today's agenda. that's a thursday in american diplomacy. do you want the job of making all those things right? i do not know you, but i know enough about you to guess that you do not want the job of making all of those things right. >> we cannot view any of these challenges or changes in a vacuum. they are all connected, and our strategy needs to account for the intersections and relationships. so the united states really does need to bring an unprecedented level of strategic sophistication to these problems rather than just chasing after the crisis of the moment. american policymakers need to play chess, not checkers. >> being in charge of diplomacy for the united states of america, being the person responsible for getting america's way in the world by some means other than bombs, being america's top diplomat is harder than any other civilian job in the united s
of the conditions and that he was forced to stand naked in front of guards. the pentagon says manning was held in accordance with the rules but if convicted, he could face life in prison. "outfront" tonight, chris lawrence covering this at the pentagon. he said he was forced to stand naked in front of guards. they tried to poke some holes in that today. did they succeed? >> in some ways, erin, very much so. they got manning to admit the guards never actually ordered him to drop the blanket that was covering his body. let's back up. manning had made a crack because they had placed so many restrictions on him in confinement that if he really wanted to kill himself he could hang himself by his underwear. the guards took that seriously and that night he was stripped naked, except for a blanket. when he got up the next morning, he had to stand at parade rest. now manning had to admit today that he inferred from what the guard said that he had to drop that blanket to stand at parade rest and he admitted today they never actually said that. and, in fact, manning said that in later days, and in subseq
the pentagon get a blank check while agencies that dispense aid to have to fight for every single nickel that they receive? why do we send and spend without restraint on wars and weapons and destroy life but we squeeze those programs that saved lives? for many years now, and you all heard me, this is my 443rd five-minute speech on this issue, for many years now i've been promoting the idea of smart security. smart security means protecting our interests, not with military force or by maintaining a massive nuclear arsenal, but by investing in development and diplomacy, through humanitarian assistance and partnerships around the world. at the aids conference in washington this past summer, there was a panel discussion on how in the struggle against hiv-aids we can do more with less. and what i want to know is, why do we have to settle for less when it comes to hiv-aids? this is a humanitarian crisis. our sense of moral deansency should be -- should compel us to invest whatever it takes to bring an end to it. it's not just the right thing, mr. speaker, it's the smart thing to do for our nat

combat is outdated, unfair, and actually bad for their careers. cnn pentagon correspondent barbara starr is joining us. tell us who these women are and what exactly they want changed. >> well, suzanne, these particular women are veterans of the wars in iraq and afghanistan and like many military women, they are getting very frustrated about the rules here because basically many jobs have been opened to women but women are still legally prohibited by the military from serving in front line combat positions. these women say it's keeping them from advancing in their careers and that the reality of war, of course, is that women are in combat these days. one of them even helicopter pilot, she was shot down, wounded, and got a purple heart. listen to what one of these women had to say about their concerns. >> the policy limits my future in the marine corps. i would be assigned to positions based on my gender rather than my qualifications or accomplishments. this doesn't make sense to me personally or professionally and frankly doesn't make sense to the military. >> what they are saying is, loo
government is money borrowed to sustain food stamps as well as the pentagon. we ought to be thinking of that in terms of our values and our future. let me speak to a couple of elements here that i think progressives should keep in mind. progressives cannot afford to stand on the sidelines in this fiscal cliff debate. important critical decisions will be made soon that will affect this country for 10 years. i think we need to be a part of this conversation. we need to be open to some topics and some issues that are painful and hard for us to talk about. we cannot stand by the sidelines in denial that this is ever going to engage us in the things we value. we cannot be so naive to believe that just taxing the rich will solve our problems. i believe that is an important part of a solution. we have to look to reform and change that is significant, that preserves many of the values and programs that brought us political life, and we cannot believe that merely ignoring these programs or not engaging will solve the problem. pick up any of the newspapers and look for the full-page ads and yo
close to. that the pentagon's got to make a contribution and if there is anything on healthcare, it's gotta be about reforming it, bringing the costs down, not cutting benefits. >> eliot: let's drill down a couple of pieces of this. what do you think the underlying ratio should be between cost cutting and revenue generation. last summer it was 10 to 1 in terms of cutting costs to revenue. thankfully the deal didn't get done. should it be one-to-one? where would you like to see this happen? >> you know, i actually don't know that number because i think the question is i think we need about a trillion and a half from revenues and the revenues have to come, as i mentioned the way president obama was campaigning. and then the pentagon's gotta make a contribution and we've already cut a trillion and a half dollars on domestic discretionary. we'll have to cut more to get a deal. but with the ratio is, i haven't been that close to what the numbers are. >> eliot: one of the issues lurking out there is the debt ceiling and

. jennifer griffin is live from the pentagon. could the iron dome protect u.s. bases overseas for instance, jennifer? >> reporter: it probably could. the army has a system but it works differently shooting multiple round of bullets rather than missiles at incoming mortars and rockets. missile defense can be very expensive. $90,000 per rocket for instance fired by the iron dome system. yesterday at the pentagon defense secretary panetta received from the defense minister of israel a mold of a tamir missile, part ever the iron dome system that worked so well during the gaza conflict. the u.s. army is investigating buying an iron dome-type system. we already invested $270 million in sealing the dome. they sealed it in record time, three years, despite many skeptics in israel as well as in the pentagon, jon. jon: if we helped fund the system, and our technology, presumably is part of it, why not just buy an iron dome from israel complete? >> reporter: it's a good question. we've learned that raytheon, an antimissile defense manufacturer has proposed something called battle dome back in novembe
